You can still sign up online for this weekend’s Turkey Plunge for Special Olympics New Jersey at Cupsaw Lake in Ringwood until 11:59 p.m. tomorrow night.
Of course, you can always register at the event, but it helps organizers to know who’s coming. Temperatures are expected to push 50 degrees on a bright, sunny day.
On-site registration begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday. Participants take the plunge at noon, with a post-plunge all-you-can-gobble-up-buffet to follow 15 minutes later.
You don’t have to jump in the lake to support law enforcement’s efforts to help Special Olympics New Jersey provide free year-round training and competition in 24 Olympic-type sports to more than 22,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
You can donate and attend. There is also an “After-Plunge Bash,” with food, refreshments, entertainment and a tricky tray.
And if you’re interested, Ringwood State Park and Skylands Botanical Gardens are right nearby. Bring the kids and make a day of it.
If you are 18 or under, you can plunge for a discounted rate of $50. You will need an initial deposit of $25 to get started.
If you’re over 18, you can plunge for a minimum of $100, but you only need a $25 deposit to get started.
Raise $100 and you’ll get a plunge sweatshirt.
Raise $50 or more and get a long sleeved t-shirt.
